Onsite Scheduled Preventative Maintenance Programs

At RAF Services LTD we pride ourselves on providing an all round reliable and lasting service. By endeavoring to do this over the years it came to our attention that a vast amount of tooling problems spiral from the lack of training and service provided.

If these services were given upon purchase then throughout the productive life of the tooling this would put you in a position to predict and take precautions preventing down time in production. With these situations in mind we decided that the ideal way for us to keep tooling in continuous use with minimum down time is to put in place a managed service program within the tools environment and working with tool operators ensuring correct use of these tools.
